Halloween is a fun time for everyone, but it can also generate a lot of litter. Pumpkins, candy wrappers, and costumes all end up in our streets, parks, and waterways. This litter is not only unsightly, but it can also harm wildlife and pollute our environment.
That's why Keep Terrebonne Beautiful is asking everyone to help us keep Halloween litter-free this year. Here are a few tips:
Dispose of your trash properly. Make sure to put all of your pumpkin guts, candy wrappers, and costumes in the trash can.
Recycle your pumpkins. Many pumpkin patches and grocery stores offer pumpkin recycling programs.
Compost your pumpkins. If you have a compost pile at home, you can compost your pumpkin.
Pick up litter after your party. If you're hosting a Halloween party, make sure to pick up any litter that's left behind.
Volunteer with Keep Terrebonne Beautiful. We host regular litter cleanups throughout the year.
By following these tips, we can all help to keep Terrebonne Beautiful and litter-free on Halloween.
P.S. Don't forget to dress up as your favorite eco-friendly superhero this Halloween!
